BREAKING NEWS: This week starts with rumors swirling of an Aerosmith break-up and Steven Tyler considering auditioning for Velvet Revolver, more to come as this story develops…

Vince Neil this week revealed the name of his solo album is Tattoos and Tequilas, it came down to the wire with Big Tits and Budweiser…Las Vegas, home to legendary music acts Elvis Presley, Elton John, and Wayne Newton will now be home (at least for a couple days) to Dee Snider and Twisted Sister’s Twisted Christmas show. Expect guitars, celebration of the holidays, and plenty of HOs…In other Twisted news Dee Snider is formally protesting the misuse of the hand gesture known as the devil horns. Sighting actors and hip hop artists using this sign not as intended, Dee wants to bring it back to rock where it belongs. You can join the movement at: http://www. takebackthehorns.com. Next, expect Dee to go after misuse of “the bird” by soccer moms cut off in traffic…

BREAKING NEWS: On word that Tyler may leave Aerosmith for Velvet Revolver Joe Perry has just issued a statement that David Lee Roth will be auditioning for their band…

In a recent interview with ex-producers and ex-managers of Motley Crue it was said that the song “Hollywood Ending”, off of their album New Tattoo, was originally written for the band Duran Duran. This is not shocking to me, what’s troubling is that I still do not have confirmation that “Look What The Cat Dragged In” was initially written for Cyndi Lauper…

And now for the game “PICK THE BAND THAT SOLD OUT WORSE”: First we have Guns N Roses allowing the use of their songs for rockabyebaby.com. Our next contestant is Motley Crue for allowing use of the song “Dr. Feelgood” to promote a Dr. Seuss movie on TBS. As is typical with this game, there are no winners here…

BREAKING NEWS: We are receiving reports that both David Lee Roth and Steven Tyler have decided to leave their bands and become a duet act, the new album is tentatively titled “Drunken Blues”…
